Chrissy Teigen on cravings

Chrissy Teigen is having a difficult time with pregnancy cravings because healthy food isn't "doing it for her" at the moment.

The 29-year-old model and her husband John Legend confirmed they are expecting their first baby together this week (beg12Oct15), after trying for years. While Chrissy is still relatively early in her pregnancy, she's started to experience some of the side effects already.

"Oh gosh, it's so different now," she told "I mean the cravings just kicked in. I never believed it before, and I thought, 'Oh you can control it.'

"(I want) literally everything. Although it's hard because I actually love salads and salad dressings and I do know how to eat healthily and I like eating healthily, but I like to indulge too. For me, acid is a really hard thing to consume right now because I always feel sour, so the dressings aren't doing it for me. I find myself eating really hearty salads and meat. Red meat and milk, that's what I'm craving."

Chrissy was talking at an event in honour of a new Crème de la Mer campaign marking the 50th anniversary of the luxury skincare brand. Unsurprisingly she is a big fan of the upmarket beauty company, saying using the cream when she is flying means she usually looks better when she steps off a plane than when she got on.

She credits a make-up artist with introducing her to the company, joking she stalked the lady in question thanks to her A-list roster.

"Mary Phillips, yes," she said. "I had wanted to work with Mary so badly because she does Jennifer Lopez's make-up and I was a huge fan of hers and her entire look. When I first met her and sat in her chair, she had a gamut of la Mer products and I was like, holy c**p I'm in good hands here. She got me obsessed with the face cream."
